(This note was typed on my new (Refurbished) Macbook Pro 13" -  
watching BBC reruns with my wife in our family room and sent via Apple  
Time Capsule wireless.)

I saved $200.00 and shipping was free from the Apple Store.  Arrived  
in absolutely flawless condition.

Our iMac is very happy to have another Mac in the house, and I'm very  
pleased to have it for my business in the field - literally use on the  
hood of my pickup at job sites.

As to photography, I use iPhoto for "triage"; film scans or downloads  
from digital cameras go there first then on to Aperture if they pass  
initial muster.  Pretty much all the connectivity you might want plus  
and SD card slot.

The screen resolution is superb for display or edit - a bit (pun  
intended) sharper than our recent iMac.

The machined aluminum case is strong, well-suited for travel,  
beautifully finished and feels right in the hand - sounds like a well- 
built camera, no?

Finally, the 13" size  works really well behind the wheel (parked, of  
course) or in coach class, where the seat pitch pretty much rules out  
larger laptops.  In your case - a working photog - I'd certainly opt  
for the solid state drive.  For backup, we use the Apple 1Tb wireless  
Time Capsule but there are many non-Apple backup devices, such as the  
My Book from Costco.

Good Hunting!
